Hi all, i have an imax 2000 and a99 in which the copper has broken down . I'm guessing as I've done a continuity test and there isn't any in either bottom section from the socket to the chrome bit nor in the middle section of the imax. Has anyone replaced the copper? I've also got an original commtel ar 5/8 (minus it's radials) . I've been ripped off on ebay when buying a 'new' a99 only to receive a 2nd hand one. They wanted me to spend another £10 to get what they should've sent me in the 1st place. 
    So I'd rather build an antenna from the bits I have. So any suggestions?
